Awesome deal, awesome product – Anaerobic Adhesive for Threadings (50ml) Reviews

Pros:
Works well. Good alternative to loctite and permatex red thread locker. Contains 5x more than Loctite bottles include. Works well.
Cons:
Complete specs aren't listed. As a result, on mission critical applications (engine parts, suspension, etc), I'd use the loctite or permatex brand with the correct level of strength. For other uses (chassis, hobby, etc) I wouldn't foresee any issues with this product.
Other:
Usually red threadlockers are very high strength. This makes it good for keeping bolts in place that you don't want to see coming out. Meaning, if you want to be able to adjust/remove the screw(s), such as in the case of a valve or parts that need threadlocker but will have to be removed after a period of time for maintenance, use a blue thread locker. These are medium strength generally speaking and can be removed with hand tools and little effort.

Also blue thread lockers usually "wick" into the threaded part, making them very useful for getting thread locker into hard to get to fasteners or adding thread locker to a part you don't to remove fully (for fear of dropping the fastener for example).
Bottomline:
Awesome stuff.
